Episode 151: Tracie's Cold Black Heart

Recorded on January 7, 2018
Book Talk starts at 21:18

Our Fall Sweater KAL is ongoing October 1-January 31!  To enter to win a prize, complete an adult sweater with sleeves - start a new one or continue with one less than 50% done, and post in the FOs thread.

New Giveaway!  Win a 2 Knit Lit Chicks hooded sweatshirt, size L (unisex size).  Leave a comment on the Ravelry group thread telling us about the best sweatshirt you’ve ever had. 

Get ready for our next KAL – the Never-Have-I-Ever Sock-along which will run February 14 through May 15.  Make socks like you’ve never made before - try a new heel, using a pattern if you usually stick with vanilla, knit from a sock blank for the first time, do color work - or maybe try socks for the very first time!  Stay tuned at our Ravelry group for more details.
